Guess it depends on what you mean by legit :)

This is a Russian site, so they will claim they obtained the rights to sell the music through some made up Russian music industry (their version of the RIAA). The songs are so cheap because they aren't paying anyone.

So I doubt the RIAA would come knocking on your door for downloading from this site, but the artist won't make any money.

Amazon has loads of albums for $5. You may have some luck with emusic, but the songs are about 50 cents a pop instead of 15.

thanks so much Chris; this was EXACTLY what I was wanting to hear (ie, that knowing as little as I do, that I was wrong to assume that simply by "charging, looking 'legit' that they were").

Clears things up a bit.

It sounds like the latest incarnation of Allok MP3 which was the old Russian cheap downloads site. They eventually got busted...
